It has been months since that initial design phase, but it is time to put our deteriorating computer desk dining table aside and take the risky plunge of bringing a concept to life.
I don't normally make plans. I measure spaces, draw a sketch, cut wood, assemble and modify as I go. For the precision required for this build however, I made a plan in PowerPoint (inspired by my friend Joanne) to demonstrate what was in my head. The overall table frame is 30" wide by 48" long, which would seat 4 wide Squared2 dining chairs.
The dining table legs and frame cost me $15 out of pocket so far.
I've made several designs and cut lists for the top, and then I'll have to decide if stain will touch the wood, or not. =D
Beautiful! That wood grain really does look super! This table frame looks like it'll be solid as a rock! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Joanne. :) It's pretty stable so far. I'm so thankful.Delete
Oh, that looks so good! Love the style and it is very nicely constructed. The wood grain is really pretty on it. Maybe just wax it? It will look great with a glass top.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the encouragement, Sharon. :) I am building the inside pattern today to show tomorrow. Hoping it all works together. =DDelete
